High Museum of Art Gallery View of Abelardo Morell: The Universe Next Door

This exhibit includes works that span the career of noted photographer, Abelardo Morell along with new works that the High Museum of Art commissioned in 2013 for its ongoing “Picturing the South” series.  This series asks noted photographers to turn their lenses toward the American South.  There are over 100 works created from 1986 to present in this photography exhibit, as well as the new “Picturing the South” images.

Morell is an internationally renowned Cuban-born American artist.  For the past 25 years Morell has incorporated the camera obscura to transform entire rooms into giant cameras and photograph incredible scenes from the outside world projected onto the interior spaces.  In this exhibit there are also many newer color photographs never before exhibited.
